Obeying God Come After Grace

According to Pastor Tim Keller people often got it wrong and this impedes our understanding of the Bible.  This is true especially when one is a new Christian or a nominal Christian.  He illustrated this concept using the story of the Israelite who were led out of Egypt.  It was not that they followed God's commands before they were delivered.   God saved them and instructed them to get out of Egypt.

Many of us also know that it is by grace and not work that we are saved.  Of course God did not say we can relax and doing nothing after being saved.  He instructed us to work, like the Great Commission.

Pastor Tim Keller said, "In a nutshell: salvation by grace, obedience, and then blessing.
"Nothing must ever be allowed to upset this order,"
